Welcome to Murray County Central Schools!
Our Mission statement proclaims that MCC proudly is "Providing educational excellence through diverse learning experiences to develop respectful, responsible, and productive citizens with high values and integrity." We are honored to have MCC Elementary recently named a Minnesota Celebration School! Our state test scores continue to rank in the top percentage of Minnesota public schools. Murray County Central is thrilled to have built positive relationships with our communities which benefit our students through a wide variety of academic and extracurricular programming. We hope that you personally take the opportunity to check out Murray County Central Schools!
Our school district is located in the southwest corner of Minnesota and is made up of the communities of Slayton, Lake Wilson, Iona, Chandler, Hadley, and Avoca. All of the PK-12 schools and programs are located in the city of Slayton, the county seat and community of approximately 2,200 residents.
The Murray County Central School District is made up of two schools serving students in grades 2-6 at West Elementary School and grades PK-1 and 7-12 at Central High School. Our communities are proud of our hard working students, dedicated faculty and staff, innovative administrative team, caring and involved parents, and supportive Board of Education. Our reputation for excellence in both academic and extracurricular activities is very high. We continue to rank above the state standards in math, reading, and science assessments and our elementary school was named a “Reward School” by MDE for its performance in 2015. Our high school attendance and graduation rates are among the highest in the state as well.
The MCC School District creates an environment that is academically challenging and developmentally responsive to the needs of our students. Our students are challenged to develop 21st Century skills and an intellectual curiosity and creativity in all disciplines. It is our goal each day to develop successful learners with high values and integrity.
We offer a wide range of programs and services which augment our academic curriculum. We want our students to move on from MCC with a commitment of service to others and a desire to assume leadership roles in an ever-changing world. It is our hope that our students use their time, talents, and treasures for the greater good of the environment, economy, and global society.
Our community members and patrons are encouraged and invited to partake in the educational experiences that are taking place here every day. We have several opportunities to support our students and are always welcoming to volunteers!
